Barrackville is the home to the second oldest covered bridge in West Virginia. Located just south of Morgantown, the covered bridge remained in use for over 130 years. It was the only covered bridge in the state that supported traffic loads without the use of modern reinforcement, a tribute to the expert craftsmanship of the Chenoweth brothers. It been said the 156 year old engineering marvel was built by the most talented bridge builder in America.
